Chanting Akaal at the Time of Death
At the time of death, we chant Akaal three times. Akaal means ‘Undying’ and refers to the soul that is being released. This sound current helps to guide the soul to pass out of this worldly realm and into the Akaal Purakh, the Undying Being. This tradition assists the departing soul in its journey home, as well as giving comfort to those left behind.
